Websites around the world, including major news sites and the United Kingdom’s government page, were temporarily down during a massive outage early Tuesday.
Fastly, an American cloud computing services provider, said it began investigating the issue about 5:58 a.m. ET on its status page. The company, which provides content delivery services to many websites, provided an update an hour later.
“A fix has been applied,” Fastly said. “Customers may experience increased origin load as global services return.”
It was not immediately clear what caused the massive outage.
